Within easy reach of the cosmopolitan cities of Manchester and Liverpool which are rich in culture with their vibrant shopping districts, restaurants and cafe culture.

The property was ideally located for our holiday. Very comfortable and warm for wet and windy autumn weather. Drying clothes was easy! However the enclosed garden/patio was a small concrete area which was not ideal for our dog and a couple of the bedrooms had sloping roof which were not apparent from the photos.

Lovely holiday with friendly and helpful hosts. We had an issue with the washing machine, and a brand new one was delivered the following morning!

Very comfortable house in a farm setting near to Blackpool, Fleetwood and the Lakes. Very well equipped and safe for babies. Scones on arrival delicious.

Reviewed by Martin 20th April 2019

We found the property very comfortable and that it easily supported our family of 6 adults and 4 children. The only down side and it is not anything major, is that you could hear people moving around upstairs due to creaky floor boards and it was difficult to tell if it was small children or adults. Especially concerning during the silent hours. MrRead mores Richardson the owner was most helpful and always on site to answer any questions. The children particularly liked feeding the pigs. Hide
